Flat Roofing Systems

A flat roof is a covering on a building in which has a no to low slopped surface. In effort to prevent pounding from occurring, materials that cove the flat roofs should allow the water to run off generously from a very slight inclination. Since ancient history times, flat roof systems have covered many of buildings. Traditionally flat roofs would use a tar and gravel based surface to waterproof the building. The modern flat roofs however tend to use a continuous membrane covering which can better resist the pools or water.

We have installed a variety of flat roof systems that may be of use for you and your building. Our company can supply you with great looking flat roofs from the selection of asphalt built up roof, CSPE, EPDM, Modified Bitumen, PVC, TPO, Curon or IB roofs.

  •  Asphalt build up roof is the most common type of flat roof available. Multiple layers of reinforcing piles and asphalt make up the asphalt built up roofs.
  • CSPE also known as the Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene. It is a synthetic rubber roof that is more commonly known as Hypalon. “
  • EPDM is Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. “Polyacrylonitrile short fibers/ethylene-propylene-diene terpolymer rubber (PAN/EPDM) composites are prepared for the first time by mechanical mixing and subsequent vulcanization at 150°C for 50min to substitute for composites reinforced with aramid short fibers, as thermal insulating materials” (Jin, 2008). “
  • Modified Bitumen is most frequently used by our company and a reliable roof to place on your roof. This type of system creates a watertight roof for projects that must be completed in stages. These granulated sheet systems are available in a variety of colors including white, oak, weatherwood, black, grey and many others. “
  • PVC is also known as Polyvinyl Chloride. This durable system is designed for a maximized roof lifecycle. This method has the strength to resist damage due to strong winds. “
  • TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) is applied by our trained professionals with a heat welder. Because this system is heat welded, the superior seam strength protects against many extreme weather conditions. Our manufactures quality products will uphold any weather conditions that will come your way here in Florida.

Facts About TPO Roofing Growing within the private and commercial flat roof industries, thermoplastic olefin, or TPO, is a popular roofing system, considered the fastest growing portion of the flat roof market. Compared to EPDM and PVC roofs, it offers benefits from both, while remaining cheaper than PVC roofing. TPO is created out of three plastic layers, a polymer base, polyester fabric center (“scrim”), and a thermoplastic polyolefin top, which combine to form a single membrane using specialized technology. Often times talc, carbon filler, fiberglass, or other usable materials are added for additional filler. In terms of color TPO comes with a variety of options, including white, and shades of grey and black. White is the most energy efficient color and, hence, the most popular, <em><strong>providing optimal UV ray reflection</strong></em>, creating a cooler roof and improving air conditioning temperature consistency. It comes in various thicknesses, measured in mils, most commonly 45 or 60 mils, with the thickest option offering the highest durability.<em><strong> Built for energy efficiency, durability, cost</strong></em>, and recyclability, TPO is smart choice in roofing options. It is designed to reflect UV rays to reduce heat on the roof and inside the building it protects, promoting energy efficiency and the longevity of its physical structure. To add to its durability TPO is additionally resistant to damaging materials such as algae, bacteria, dirty, and other debris, and made up of strong seams which are welded together.
Environmentally speaking, TPO is considered a type of green roofing, formed using chlorine-free polymer (as chlorine is dangerous to the environment), and is completely, totally recyclable, often reused to make new roof membranes. When purchasing or considering TPO as a potential roof system, a few things should be considered. (For a fuller list, be sure to read this article.) These include manufacturing quality, energy efficiency and durability. When considering membranes, keep in mind that some manufactures of TPO have only been in the business for a few years. The best manufacture of TPO will be a business that has created TPO for at least 10 years, and remains up to ASTM standards in roofing. In terms of energy efficiency, remember that white or light grey colors are the most efficient energy savers and provide for maximum temperature cooling. As for durability, thicker membranes, such as 60 mils thick, and strong seams, provide the most weather protectant and reliable roofs, to keep your building well maintained.
